In 1983, the second round was completed Sunday at 8:30 a.m. due to storms, with the third round beginning at 10:54 a.m. Seve Ballesteros opened his final round with a birdie-eagle-par-birdie to finish with a 69 for a four-shot victory over Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite.

Three-time Masters victor Phil Mickelson began his third round with a par on No. 1.

5 p.m This is a tradition unlike any other for the Masters - an early start Sunday with hopes of finishing ahead of thunderstorms.

The 14-time major champion charged up the leaderboard Friday, but the roars heard around Augusta National turned into folks holding their breath for a moment on the 14th hole.

Woods' third straight birdie came on a two-putt from 13 feet. There is little wind, and recent rain has led to a softer course with more forgiving greens.

Patrick Cantlay leaped up the leaderboard with an 8-under 64, the low round of this Masters so far.

Two holes after that, Woods got up and down for birdie at the par-5 15th, and then stuck his tee shot to 7 feet at the par-3 16th, which he also birdied.

"The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount", said Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley in a press bulletin released Saturday afternoon.

Woods was 11 under - and tied for the lead - as he headed to the par-4 17th.

Webb Simpson was seven-under through 15 holes to sit one back of Finau alongside Xander Schauffele, Scott and Koepka.

But he very much looks in contention this time round, along with a big group of players including the likes of Francesco Molinari, Adam Scott and Brooks Koepka.
